House of Horrors - Michigan: Report From Hell

There are two things that define a classic horror game: A solid concept and bad voice acting. Michigan: Report From Hell has both these things... but not much else. Guest host Edmond Tran proceeds to lower the bar this week on House of Horrors.

Thank you for playing this for us! I had no idea a horror game can be this bad. While it totally failed in getting us scared, it was actually pretty entertaining. And no offense to Jess of course, but it's nice to see a different face playing House of Horrors once in a while.

The game title "Michigan: Report From Hell" is actually plagiarized. Channel 4 News in Detroit already locked that down long ago.

These face zooms are too funny. I think that attempt to make a horror game was unsuccessful hahahahaha I spent most of the time laughing at this game...Edmond and @Zorine you two make a great pair, I enjoyed a lot!

Oops. Pardons all around... I forgot to point my finger to the fact that this show was aimed at games of the past. On top of that, playing Outlast would ruin the experience for others. (It was released only recently!)

So forget Outlast.

Play Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts. (It's not survivor horror, but elements are there, its super hard, and who doesn't like watching people play frustrating platformers? I think that game would make a great episode.)

This episode was hilarious from beginning to end. Edmond, props to you man, for your wit and willingness to go through with the title. (Ya'll found TONS of humor in it though) Zorine, Outlast. Definitely Outlast...

hahaha does lines hahaha, the only thing brisco left to said was "it´s a camera man" it remainds me the classic "don´ go" that chris says when the helicopter is leaving in the original RE for PSone, i know this isn't such a horro game but meybe when jess return you can plat Last of Us?? my recommendations are basically the same hahaha, haunting ground, rule of rose and alone in the dark 4: the new nightmare all of them from ps2, and for current gen i recommend to play condenmed

I think u guys really underappreciate Brisko , were it not for him and his awesome skills for spottin things and stating the obvious Im sure u woulda missed that gigantic bug on the stairs or not have known that the machine thingy on the table was indeed a telephone. So I salute u Brisko and great choice of an awful/good game lol. And yea Outlast then the new Amnesia!!

ED! Where have you been, haven't seen you on any shows for a while since they changed the show listing.

I really miss Indie-Hour!!!

@Zorine, you guys should do Outlast which I believe is a very recent release. Looks great.

Oh gosh! I have never heard of this game, but I remember seeing a short scene of it, (mixed with other games) on YouTube, in one of many  video's based on video games worst voice acting. Funny stuff, with Chaos Wars and RE(1) being the all time worst in game voice acting history.

I never knew the name of this game, or that it even existed until recently, but it doesn't seem like I missed out on a great survivor/horror title and boy there's ALOT of bad voice acting in it!

The only scary thing about this game is that it's bad for your health just look at Zorine. The deeper they got into the stream the more ill she became, somebody get her a shot of dota 2 stat! I hope you feel better and very cool seeing Ed but maybe he shouldn't pick the games anymore.

@miranda246 Thanks for the suggestion miranda246! We do tackle newer titles as well, but I am patiently waiting for Jess' return for Outlast. I believe she really wanted to play it.

@DoogyDonDoogy I was apologising for the AWFUL GAME. I make no apologies for not being Jess.

@daviz88 Not yet. I gave my copy to a friend who wanted to borrow it and haven't had it returned yet!

@sachem31 D is also known as D's Diner, yes?  if so that game is impossible to come by.  i have no mouth is an old game but not really survival horror as much as psychological horror and i didnt find hell night all that scary.

@CruiserCaptain @Zorine I think they're waiting for Jess to return before they play Outlast because... well because it'll probably put her in a coma which is ALWAYS fun.

@Zorine Are you feeling better now? Did they give you the rest of the day off after the stream?

@Zorine If only they would tell us WHY the snake explodes in the cabin... it's my mystery of the week.

@Zorine @miranda246 Yes, because nothing says "Welcome back." like  putting someone on the internet and scaring them senseless. >:D

@doorselfin @miranda246 No probs, brother. You deserve it. You and Zorine had great chemistry in the episode, and that helped to lengthen the laughs you gave us all with your reactions to the campy delivery of the game.

@doorselfin @DoogyDonDoogy Just teasing you, wasn't sure if you were being self-conscious about the Jess Fan Base going ape nuts in her absence.  Relax Edmond you did fine, great/weird game too =)

@crix01 I am feeling much better now, thanks for asking! And no, I stayed and worked for the rest of the day!

@anja1234 Correct! When Jess returns we will definitely be tackling Outlast and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

@Zorine @daviz88 @crix01 I never played the original Dota. I see is like Storm Spirit. I didn't know they had Panda versions in the original.

@daviz88  @crix01 @Zorine Thanks! 

The bear avatar is a hero from Warcraft III/the original Dota map, Raijin Thunderkeg. He's awesome!

@Zorine Good to know you're better. I like to think you defeated that illness with a headshot. Btw, what's that bear avatar of yours?
